All about forehead lift / eyebrow lift

Eyebrow lift (or forehead lift) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces wrinkles, lifts sunken eyebrows and heavy eyelids.

  • These changes make us look older and more tired. They may also give us a serious, worried, or sleepy expression.

Restores the effects of aging

While lifting the forehead, the skin and underlying tissues on the forehead are stretched. This has several effects:

  • Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead and vertical wrinkles between the eyes are removed.
  • The eyebrows are lifted to their previous position.
  • Heavy lifting of the eyelids opens the gaze.
  • Together, these changes lead to an open, lively and carefree facial expression.

Forehead lift can be done in two different ways. Traditional (also called open method) and endoscopic method (peephole surgery).
